Kate and Peter's Fabulous Stoneridge Estate Arrowtown Wedding

Kate and Peter... oh, wow, what a wedding this was!

Kate had told me previously that ‘Live, Laugh, Love’ was the phrase for the wedding and this perfectly summarises the fabulous and very full day filled with laughter and joy. From their pre wedding venue of Wharenui Estate to the Arrowtown Hall (which looked beyond amazing with all the decorations & peonies!), I loved every moment I spent with this fun-loving couple along with their many family & friends. I even came back the next day to capture some post wedding photos, but that’s another story...

Here are a few of the many favourite moments for me:

Kate sang herself down the aisle   Peter’s 4 sons along with his brothers plus Kate’s son Presley were included in the bridal party   Presley had the important job of being the ‘Ring Security Guard’ aka ring bearer   Location photos were at Michael Hill golf club as well as Arrowtown  Kate & Peter’s wedding cake made of 3 tiers of goat, sheep and cow cheese   Rhinestone messages on their shoe bottoms   Kate’s bouquet charm of her day   And... so many peonies!!!!
